Your Questions Answered
HOW DO I GET STARTED?
Fill out this form here. It helps guide our time together. It helps you to think through what you want to achieve by working with me. I get to know what you have tried in the past, what you want to achieve etc.
Submit the form and you get an email reminder to make the FREE “Discovery” appointment. It is not a consult. It is just to see if my services suit your needs.
HOW DO WE MEET?
Online via video conference such as Skype/Facetime/Hangouts. Or just a call. We can even look at documents and slides together by using a screen sharing service. No traffic to deal with.
SO AFTER FIGURING OUT THAT WE CAN WORK TOGETHER, THEN WHAT?
I can recommend some tests that may be useful for providing a better impression of what could be happening internally.
Once you and I are in agreement what you are willing to test and want to use my coaching services. I'll bill you my fees and have the kits dropped shipped to you.
After that, I'll send you a pile of forms to complete while we wait for the tests to arrive and to be filled out by you for mailing back to the labs.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER I MAIL IN THE SAMPLES?
You wait for the results to be emailed to me and I will let you know right away. You can then set up the “Results and Recommendations Session”. While waiting for the results to come in, practice the 5 essentials to weight loss. This will help you get a leg up on what we are about to embark on together. These are small changes that will have a significant impact on your goals. They will go a long way to establishing lifelong habits that will help tremendously. I guarantee you.
If you have not done the forms yet, take the time to fill and email them in. They will take about an hour to hour and a half of your time.
IS THERE A MEAL PLAN?
That is because meal plans often don't work. Simply because eating involves active decisions by you. It requires planning ahead, sometimes negotiations with family members, adapting to your own cultural background and most of all...individual taste.
Meal plans are often treated like prescriptions. Unfortunately, you cannot pop open a pill box to swallow the perfect meal for yourself. And what fun is that anyway?
I prefer to empower you to make your own decisions. It is more involved for me and you. However the effects will be more lasting too.
CAN YOU DIAGNOSE WHAT’S WRONG WITH ME?
I am not a medical practitioner and cannot diagnose any medical problems. If you believe you have a serious medical condition, you should seek the help of a medical professional. What I look for is not an outright disease, rather an imbalance in your health that could in result in something more serious down the road.
WHAT KIND OF LAB TESTS DO YOU DO?
We start off with saliva and urine tests first. These are gateway tests that I look at together with all the forms you diligently filled out. They help guide my ability to form an impression on what could be hindering your efforts. Beyond that, there are stool and blood tests that can be done, to provide better insight into what could be your individual hidden challenges.
DO I NEED TO GO TO THE LAB?
Not at first. A saliva and urine collection kit is mailed to you when you sign up with me. You follow the instructions provided with the box. Provide your credit card info in the form for the lab fees and mail it in.
DO I NEED A BLOOD TEST?
Not in the beginning. Maybe further down the road if the early tests hints at needing it. For example: food sensitivity testing.
I HAD A BUNCH OF TESTS DONE BEFORE, CAN I SUBMIT THEM TO YOU FOR THE FIRST CONSULT?
If they had been done in the last 6 months, please do. However I still recommend the most basic set to tests to be done (Level 2) to make our sessions more fruitful.
Together they help provide a bigger picture, but it does not serve as a diagnostic function. It helps guide my recommendations on what you can do next.
HOW MUCH WILL THIS COST?
There are the lab fees and there are my fees.
My fees are grouped into time based packages and ad-hoc rates based on additional labs that you may want. Lab fees (which you pay independently) can range from USD367 and up.
I do not have any monetary ties with the lab. I use them because they have a proven track record and I am used to their lab reporting standards.
WHAT FORMS OF PAYMENT DOES NUTRITIONEER CONSULTING LLC TAKE?
Credit card only at the moment. Visa. Mastercard. AmEx. Discover.
WILL MY HEALTH INSURANCE COVER CLINICAL NUTRITIONIST SERVICES?
I am afraid many insurance companies does not cover this form of health self help.
